Bradford Pear trees are exploding in white all over Dallas and are in my eyes. This scene in on Hillcrest Ave. near Mockingbird Lane. This “Tunnel of White” is on my trip home from the my office and is highlighted by the sun.

I took a walk around the block early on February 4,  2011 after the  4 day blizzard. This morning the sun finally broke through the clouds. This painting is a beautiful home on Purdue Ave and I was impressed with all the shadows cast on the home created by the trees. The neighborhood was sparkling with sun bouncing off of the snow.

In this scene the trolley is being over taken by foreign tourist for a ride up the famous Powell street. Almost everyone is carrying a full back pack and no one is talking. The city is bustling with pedestrians moving quickly and quietly down the sidewalks in every direction going who knows where. The majority of the pedestrians have ear phones in their ears listening to music. I find the energy exciting and refreshing. Most of all I am impressed with the friendliness and kindness of the locals and the tourist.  There were artist everywhere, making art. It was a nice trip.

The owner’s previous residence in University Park was demolished several years ago to make way for their new home. This painting was done from memory, old photos and an old video which shows off  it’s signature Crape Myrtle trees and the Photinia hedges. My memory of this home was the young children playing, the shadows from all the trees and the beautiful Christmas lights every year.
